Best Skate Punk Bands

Skate punk artists list, with photos, ranked best to worst by votes. List of good skate punk bands includes a filter so you can sort by the groups’ labels and what albums they've put out. Originally derivative of the West Coast hardcore punk scene, skate punk (also called skate rock or skatecore) has changed over the years, but still maintains its punk rock roots. This list of the top skate punk bands in the world includes all musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. Skate punk groups and artists are shown below along with any additional genres in which their music belongs. If available, you can also see information about where all skate punk bands on this list got started. These are truly the greatest skate punk bands of all time, since the most famous skate punk artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best skate punk music.

You can click on the skate punk band names to see more information about that particular notable skate punk group. If they're near the top of the best skate punk artist list, though, then they should have at least some information available. All the top skate punk bands named on the list also have discographies on their pages if you click on the skate punk band names themselves.

Items on this list include Blink-182 and Bad Religion. Vote for your favorite items by clicking the thumbs up button. Make sure to vote for items like Dead Kennedys or The Offspring if you like them.

The list includes all new skate punk bands, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. Just make sure they aren't already on the list and check your spelling, because this is already an accurate compilation of the best examples of skate punk, as well as a good place to start if you're asking yourself, or friends, exactly how to get into skate punk music. Especially since the bands at the top of the list will at the very least be the best choices if you're looking for a list of good skate punk bands with which to start out. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent skate punk bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best skate punk bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest skate punk musician ever?"

If you know enough about the genre, please vote based on the quality of the band's music instead of just voting for the most popular skate punk bands that you might've heard of, but not really listened to closely enough to cast an informed vote.
